Now that I think of it, it’s possible that Cyndi Lauper’s set was the best. Nobody else rose above the audience in a giant torch; nobody else released dozens of enormous balloons on the audience; nobody else paused mid song to run off stage and bitch out the lighting engineer. Rosie reappeared to play drums on “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” which was pretty cool; far cooler was Lauper’s fearless claim on that Goonies song. We opted for taxis when second encore “True Colors” got all “We Are the World” on stage, but I admit I had that same feeling I always get at the end of big gay happenings, despite all my bitching: how far we’ve come. How good that is. And how did I spend $90?
